Re: 1930 cabriolet wood pieces

The Benson center may have what you need in the way of drawings but I don't think wood drawings in total exist for your car.

You can start on MAFFI and look at the drawing available before you...

Re: babbit tolerance? .000?

Apology.


I jumped to a conclusion about reuse of Babbitt. I have zero proof that they do anything other then use the pot to melt the old rod bearings out.

Re: What would identify a Brookville 1931 Roadster Body

The Brookville body costs about $7000.00 So I would say that cost would be the difference between original and Brookville.

Re: babbit tolerance? .000?

The video showed them dipping the rods to remove the babbit. How much do you want to bet they re-use Babbitt? One more thing they mentioned "lead based babbitt that Ford used" Not true.

Re: Fuse blows even when key off

Keep in mind that on the Model A the ignition switch only turns on the ignition, and only the power to the points at that. Everything else will have power when the battery is connected.

Try this, don't put in any oil and drive another 200 miles and see if it goes down any more.

Re: Short circuit issues. Where to start

The biggest problem is we don't (and it seems you don't ) exactly how the car was wired.
